About Us

Foundations

Tekran was founded in Toronto, Canada in 1989 to develop custom analytical instrumentation for environmental analysis. Our first analyzer, the Tekran 2537, was introduced in 1993 and is now widely accepted as the gold standard for automated ambient air analysis of mercury. Tekran continues to expand and improve our product lines, which are focused exclusively on instruments and systems for mercury measurement. We now offer systems for ambient air mercury speciation monitoring, automated analysis of total mercury and methyl mercury in environmental samples, total mercury in natural gas, and mercury continuous emission monitoring of coal-fired power plants and other industrial emission sources. We also offer a wide range of secondary equipment to support our main product lines.

Who We Are

Tekran Instruments Corporation is the world’s leading manufacturer of advanced systems for ambient air, laboratory analysis, and point-source mercury monitoring. With pioneering expertise in cold vapor atomic fluorescence detection, Tekran has become the trusted source for accurately and reliably measuring ultra-trace levels of mercury. Tekran has provided more automated air analyzers and Hg-CEM monitoring systems than any other supplier worldwide.

What We Do

Tekran is an international leader in environmental measurement technology, serving the needs of industry, government and research institutions with applications ranging from pure research to primary manufacturing. We revolutionized continuous mercury monitoring through the use of cold vapor atomic fluorescence spectrophotometry and pure gold preconcentration. Tekran’s systems for ultra-trace measurement of mercury in ambient air, stack emissions and environmental samples are extraordinarily sensitive and robust with detection limits of less than 1 picogram absolute and practical immunity to interfering compounds.

Leadership

Tekran is known worldwide for the accuracy and dependability of our equipment and will continue to exceed customer expectations. From developing the industry’s first proven ambient air analyzer and mercury Hg-CEMs, Tekran has been at the forefront of the mercury measurement industry since 1992. For example, the Tekran 3310 Elemental Mercury Calibration Source was chosen by the US National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) as the “NIST Prime” which is used to certify all other Hg-CEM calibration sources.
Tekran’s research and development efforts continue to be headed by cofounders Frank Schaedlich and Dan Schneeberger. Our unique solutions and industry leading designs have been awarded numerous patents. With our growing staff of research engineers and technicians, the Tekran team leads the way with employee commitment to innovation, quality and customer service. As we pursue future opportunities, we know Tekran has the people, technology and resources to measure up to your standards and ours.

TSI Incorporated provides Tekran with the ability quickly ramp production, delivering large scale mercury monitoring solutions to industry. For more information, see www.tsi.com.

FEATURED PRODUCTS

Tekran - Model 1306 - Water Filtration System

The Tekran Model 1306 Water Filtration System is an inexpensive, convenient source of deionized, mercury free water for the Series 3300 Mercury CEM. The system has two stages of pre-filtration to eliminate all particulate and organic contamination in the water. A reverse osmosis (R/O) unit then removes the bulk of ionic material. Two stages of finishing ion exchange (IX) resin filters then remove any remaining ionic compounds, including mercury. The ...

Tekran - 3321 - Oxidizer Module

The Tekran Model 3321 Wall Mounted Sample Conditioner can be configured to supply Ionic Mercury Calibration Gas to the 3300Xi Hg CEM system. The calibration source allows both multi-point calibrations and standard additions to be automatically initiated. The unit generates concentrations of ionic mercury by oxidation elemental Hg output from the Tekran 3310Xi Hg Calibration Unit.

FEATURED APPLICATIONS

Mercury monitoring for mercury flux measurement

The Tekran 2537 has been used in numerous published studies to measure the deposition or evasion of mercury from natural or contaminated surfaces (i.e. flux measurements). It is anticipated that many mercury flux measurements will be needed in the future to assess the impact of climate change on mercury cycling in the environment. There are two basic ways to do mercury flux measurements. First, the dynamic flux chamber method utilizes a custom enclosure, with controlled air flow, to measure the inlet and outlet...

Mercury monitoring for on-site remediation

Fugitive emissions can be a health concern during removal and disposal of mercury-contaminated material at remediation sites. Thus, remediation projects either indoors or outdoors often require on-site, real-time mercury air monitoring with a Tekran 2537. This assures permitted levels are not exceeded during waste processing and human exposure levels are below government regulated toxicity thresholds. Often multiple sites must be monitored continuously. The Tekran 1115 Multi-Port Sampler is the ideal tool for...
